What do you do if you run out of power in his Tesla Model 3 during a drive?
You bugserer the as just!
Yes, it is indeed a possible solution. And if all the conditions are in order – mild weather, flat terrain, and few stops – it is also a surprisingly effective way to charge the car's battery.
It demonstrates american Matt Shumaker from the YouTube channel Tech Forum in a video, at the time of writing has had 43.000 views.
the Video begins with Matt Shumaker is driving his Tesla Model 3 (which was still not available at home, but for the longest time has been introduced in the UNITED states) to a residential neighborhood, it is flat and shaped like a spisebønne, and where you can run in circles without slowing down.
Here he meets his son, who sits ready to tow in his Ford C-Max hybrid car.
the Son draws the father's car exactly one mile, while through a screen in the Tesla can follow, how the power consumption in the electric car goes in minus, and which slowly but surely generated energy to the battery.
Opladningsaktionen be performed at a speed of 18-22 mile/hr., which is equivalent to 28-35 km/h., and subsequently put Matt Shumaker to test how far Tesla can run on top of the one mils towing.
And here it is, that the method surprises very positively. 12,8 mil shows the Tesla Model 3 to be able to run (in the same economic pace, 28-35 km/h, and in the quiet neighborhood on flat road and without using the brake) on the energy was bothered.
- It was a fantastic test! Wow, the numbers are far beyond what I had anticipated, says Matt Shumaker in the video.
And how does the method so, wondering why you might? Like most other electric cars, making the Tesla Model 3 use of what is called 'regenerative braking’ – a powerful engine brake, which strikes before the traditional brakes and makes the car able to collect energy to the battery by braking. It is this motor that will be put on the work during the test.
at the same time, it should be mentioned that the car was switched on while the car is being towed took place, and that it had just been updated with the latest software.
the Meaning of the regenerative brakes is no way that you should charge her electric car by having it towed. But inadvertently allow the that makes it such, and in theory you can leave it fully up on the way, writes Jalopnik.
the Same media have turned to Tesla to hear what they are thinking about the method.
According to the article calls the Tesla car is being towed for a ’creative, but not very practical’ way to charge the car's battery. As one Facebook user suggests in the commentary to the article, you will be able to buy two copies of the Model 3 and alternately use one to charge the other.
But such a strategy seems thus not to be included in Tesla's future plans.
